This photograph shows a replica of the Kurahaupō, which brought the ancestors of the Muaūpoko people to New Zealand. ‘Te ihi o Kurahaupō’, a waiata (song) by Darren Reid, tells of the voyage of the Kurahaupō canoe, and the quest of its captain Whātonga to find his grandfather, the explorer Toitehuatahi.
